    I don't think so. From what I recall the Russians have stopped ordering the T-90 in favor of waiting for the Armata. Personally, I would continue purchasing the T-90 as a "monkey model" when compared to the Armata, particularly because it's based on a previous platform and can be integrated relatively quickly.

    It is meant to sell on export.

    I never noticed how small a T-90 is compared to a Merkava...

    I think cost lot to make the new. Cheaper to do T90 tech into moderna T72 block 3

    And it doesn't look much smaller than Abrams.

    And it's a level down to the Armata tank - no active protection system, older reactive armor, older gun etc.

    Those who would give up Liberty to purchase a little Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

    Better than the previous versions, but that's still an awful lot of ammunition inside the crew compartment. Never liked that design concept.

    Not much since still is an old fashioned tank for old fashioned warfare.

    Now, a BMPT, that would be something completely different...
